Last night, we held a pretty productive chat in https://chat.lolcow.farm/r/meta about site policies and what sort of threads belong in /snow/. I may do another one tonight.

I'd like to start doing these once every 1 or 2 weeks. Some chats may have specific topics. Otherwise, you can just ask me general questions about the site and discuss the state of it and its future.

I will also try to post transcripts for each chat, possibly with some off-topic discussion removed, for people who are unable to join at that time. Note that a lot of off-topic discussion is still in these transcripts, so apologies if you have to sift through a lot of irrelevant material.

Town Hall #1 - 9/14/15: http://pastebin.com/rt4QLix2

No. 1229

just curious, why does it stop halfway through the chat?
i'm not well-versed in pastebin, is there more or is that all there is?

No. 1232

>>1229
I cut out everything after that point in the chat, because I consider it too off-topic. No real discussion of moving threads happened after then.

No. 1249

I plan on holding a town hall once every Wednesday evening, Eastern time. Next one will be tomorrow, September 23.

No. 1466

>>1249
Will you continue to update the chatlogs for those of us who aren't online at the time?

No. 1784

We have stopped doing these once per week. I usually announce them 2 days in advance, and just do them when I feel like it, or if something important is going on. I may go back to a standard schedule soon.

Still deciding on the best way to handle chat logs.

No. 5787

I can no longer access this site when using mobile data.

I always get 'connection lost' or something in regards to me having no internet connection.
It's fine when I use Wi-Fi but n it mobile data. The site doesn't seem to be blocked by my mobile provider as I could access it on data up until a few months ago and if it were blocked by them I'd be told that.

Every other site of this type works fine it's just lolcow that doesn't.

Anyone know why? How can I fix this?

No. 5796

Suggestion for a "submit report" and/or "are you sure you want to delete your post?" prompts to help with preventing accidental reports & deleting. Probably annoying at the beginning, but best to prevent missclicks rather than having to go through captcha

I keep thinking this, and it looks like the last time it was mentioned was 3 years ago, and there are even more youtube cow threads now! I mean Onion/Lainey, Game Grumps/Suzy, Dasha/Edwin/Cyr/Mina, Kelly Eden, Baylee Jae, grav3yardgirl, Mags/Venus, Logan Paul, Pewdiepie just to name a few. I know some of them would stay on /pt/ but a separate youtube board might be nice. Just think of all the beautubers alone! The fact that we needed a whole separate youtube embedding system alone seems like enough indication.

Maybe something like /yt/ or /guru/ ? I know Gurugossiper exists but trying to read a forum where everyone has signatures and avatars and stacks of quotes in the year 2018 seems wild.

What is the point of this thread being stickied? Admin I says he's leaving, yet this thread is the one slapped right at the top of meta because …why? So he can watch from afar as all the teen girls on this site hopefully cry over his absence? People can swap "theories" for his own amusement? It's kind of disturbing.

Welcome to the first lolcow.farm survey.

Each person should post in this thread only once. You can say whatever you want about the site, its users, or me. Please try to give serious and truthful answers though, since I will use this feedback to make decisions about rules and site changes. This isn't a "vote" or anything, but it will guide changes I make.

Only make a post if you are replying to the survey questions. Don't reply to anyone else's posts.

To answer, I'd much prefer if you use greentext for the questions. All you have to do is make sure you copy the > with each line. I would recommend you copy all the questions at once, paste them into your reply, then start answering each one. For example:

>1. When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
7 months ago
>2. How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?
Yahoo teen chatroom

Please give answers as long or short as you like, unless the question specifies a length requirement. You may skip any of the questions if you don't want to answer them. Everything is optional. If for some reason you don't want to post your answers publicly, you can email your answers to me at lolcow.farm@gmail.com

>1. When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
>2. How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?
>3. Describe lolcow in one sentence.
>4. (Completely optional) What is your gender?
>5. (Completely optional) What, roughly, is your age? Feel free to give an age range, or your exact age if you want to.
>6. Do you usually just read threads, or do you post more than once a week?
>7. Roughly how frequently do you check lolcow?
>8. Is lolcow the first imageboard you've lurked or posted on?
>9. Did you lurk or post on Stamina Rose, or its predecessor?
>10. What related communities (sites and specific sections/boards) were, or are, you in? You can include any sites you want here, but if you use(d) any of these sites you should probably list them: /cgl/, other 4chan boards, /cow/, other 8chan boards, Tumblr, PULL. Please list them in order of "most frequented" to "least frequented". So if you go on /cgl/ the most and Tumblr the least, it should be "/cgl/, ..., Tumblr".

>11. What do you think is the #1 issue facing lolcow?
>12. What do you like most about lolcow and/or its community?
>13. Which board do you read/use the most? And which do you like the most, if it's not the same board?
>14. Roughly what percentage of /pt/ threads do you actually read or follow?
>15. Roughly what percentage of /pt/ threads do you ignore or don't care about?
>16. Do you think opening /snow/ was a good idea?

>17. For the following statements, reply with one of "Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral/Don't Care, Agree, Strongly Agree". You can elaborate further if you want, but you don't have to.
>17a. Users from Tumblr and/or PULL are negatively impacting the site.
>17b. Users from /pol/ and/or 8chan are negatively impacting the site.
>17c. There are too many racial discussions and arguments in threads.
>17d. I believe freedom of speech is extremely important.
>17e. The opening of /g/, for girl-interest topics, was a good idea.
>17f. I am overall satisfied with most of the content on the site.
>17g. Post quality has been declining on average over time.
>17h. When rules are enforced, they are usually enforced fairly and without bias.
>17i. Rules should be enforced more harshly than they are now (stricter moderation, more bans, longer bans).

>18. Do you think self-posting should be banned in /pt/? How about /b/? Where should the line be drawn as to what is actually self-posting?
>19. Do you think any new boards should be added? Should any existing ones be removed?
>20. Are there specific behaviors, phrases, or types of post you're sick of seeing?
>21. Do you think samefagging is an issue? If so, in which boards is it causing issues? Do you think policies around samefagging should change, either by adding randomized unique poster IDs (not usernames) like some 4chan/8chan boards, or changing rules regarding samefagging, or both?
>22. Is there another website or community that you think we should follow in terms of rules or moderation? If so, which community, and which aspects should we consider adopting?
>23. Is there anything that you think lolcow staff have done poorly? If so, what is it, and how could it be changed or improved?

When some people find information on a cow and then "raiding" their pages / inboxes / emails and such.

Started lurking about a month or two ago.

Tumblr, /cgl/, r/kpop.
>11. What do you think is the #1 issue facing lolcow?
Spoony, probably.
>12. What do you like most about lolcow and/or its community?
It makes me cautious about the "internet hype" which the e-fame types try to surround themselves with. While I like tumblr for the looking at pretty images, it has to be the absolute worst platform for encouraging those types.

Hello everyone, I'm your new admin!

Regina has been showing me the ropes for the past few weeks and finished transferring everything to me.

I've made a new discord, anyone who wants to join can do so at https://discord.gg/J6zJuXV. You don't need a discord account to join, and there is no longer any verification process.

If you are interested in being a janitor or moderator for the site/discord, please apply here: https://lolcow.typeform.com/to/zD7ZD8

I plan on issuing a survey in the next couple of days to see what direction we want for the site. I want to generally have stricter moderation to cut down on nitpicking of snowflakes and off-topic posts. This will remain a place for free speech, however I'd like to improve the general quality of posts, if possible.

Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

The banner of Logan is still in rotation. Anons in the Raven thread have made several reports and requests to have it removed.

I don't see why the banner should be removed just because the relationship is in the past. It's still part of lolcow history and we don't prune content. It's not necessary, but it's not a case of something that should be removed because it's against our rules.

Thoughts on these posts?

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773831
>I kind of miss drama threads on /cgl/. Don't get me wrong, I know the farm exists but I'd rather discuss actual drama then having to sit through 500 replies of people going 'lol get a nosejob" and how 'ugly' everyone is. I guess that's just because I never really cared about discussing someone's looks? So the farm is kinda boring to me most of the time.

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773850
>The farm is a cringefest most of the girls there are so insecure they need to shred every cow's physical appearance to pieces "lol she's so ugly and fat and her nose is so big and her eyebrows are terrible geez she's sooo haggard and old looking" also lots of ana chans calling everyone a fatty. It's painful and not fun anymore. I miss the drama here because it was simpler,

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773857
>Oh this so much, I'm average close to underweight but I usually don't care what strangers on the net think about my body type.
>But somehow these girls manage to get under my skin and make me hate myself, when it's not even about ME or anyone with similar body shape or weight. I cringe every time someone mentions the farm nowadays because of these people's unhealthy obsession with how other people look

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8774577
>This. I lurked the farm a lot for a few months and I gotta say the posters are more cringeworthy than most of the cows. If you read the OT threads about mental health and feels, it's more than apparent that a lot of the people on there are batshit insane themselves and very miserable. I realized I was among that group and have been trying to improve my life and personality, it's really distressing to realize you fit all the stereotypes of a typical farmer. I just seriously hope more of them do before it's too late for me.

Certainly some valid points there.

Discuss and debate rule changes here.

Rule changes can be found at >>1014

No. 1028

In the survey you mentioned the possibility of splitting /pt/ into two. With the new rule about having to justify posting someone new in /pt/, maybe there could be two separate boards: one for established lolcows and one for new/potential ones, to see if there's interest in them? I think that might be a better solution than moving them to /b/

No. 1031

>>1028

I was initially against the idea of splitting /pt/, but this really is a very good idea.

It means if you're looking for a specific type of drama no more sifting through page after page after page of lesser known cows to find the juicy stuff, and if you're interesting in new drama you can simply head over to the other board.

I want to make a request though.
If the main drama board is /pt/, please for the love of god name the lesser cow board /kiki/.

No. 1034

>>1028
I have been considering this for many weeks now and debating it with the rest of the staff.

The big problem is that there is potential for disagreement and drama when staff move threads which are in a gray area. If staff think a thread should be moved but 30 posters think it should stay, they may not be happy with staff essentially decreeing "this is a shitty thread and we don't care if you like it and think the person is a lolcow".

Of course, the thread will still exist, but it'll be surrounded by much shittier threads in a board with less rule enforcement.

I'm still pretty undecided, especially since most people are fine with just hiding threads.
